It’s always nice to receive an award.   Quads Unlimited panels and restorations have been awarded twice, in 2007 and 2008 by The Absolute Sound magazine, for improving the original Quad ESL, and some of its bretheren, beyond the state of the art.

Jim Hannon:  “Restored to its original condition with re-manufactured panels, the ESL-57 is a very special loudspeaker, but it is not for everyone.  I purchased a fully restored pair from Wayne Picquet a few years ago and was shocked at how much more dynamic and seemingly extended they were compared to previous pairs I’d owned.”

Paul Seydor:   “…own a classic that still eclipses most of the competition”
